"…if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours… ."

Yes my sons, that direction includes the ever important school :)

My family has always been private about our time spent together. It was our way of keeping one thing that was ours, with a man we shared with an entire world. But now that’s gone, and I feel stripped bare. My last day with him was his birthday, and I will be forever grateful that my brothers and I got to spend that time alone with him, sharing gifts and laughter. He was always warm, even in his darkest moments. While I’ll never, ever understand how he could be loved so deeply and not find it in his heart to stay, there’s minor comfort in knowing our grief and loss, in some small way, is shared with millions. It doesn’t help the pain, but at least it’s a burden countless others now know we carry, and so many have offered to help lighten the load. Thank you for that.

To those he touched who are sending kind words, know that one of his favorite things in the world was to make you all laugh. As for those who are sending negativity, know that some small, giggling part of him is sending a flock of pigeons to your house to poop on your car. Right after you’ve had it washed. After all, he loved to laugh too…

Dad was, is and always will be one of the kindest, most generous, gentlest souls I’ve ever known, and while there are few things I know for certain right now, one of them is that not just my world, but the entire world is forever a little darker, less colorful and less full of laughter in his absence. We’ll just have to work twice as hard to fill it back up again.

My only statement. My brothers’ are also online. Thank you for all your kindness, and goodbye for awhile guys. xo (via zeldawilliams)

*warning* this post contains language of the bathroom nature. ;)

So it’s been two days in a row that this handsome little dude has pee pee’d in the potty! We’re so proud of our little #Maximus!  He doesn’t go himself and doesn’t yet say he has to go, we still have to be aware of the time and help him to the potty but at least he’s not resisting anymore. And we’re still working on not going poo in the pull up but hey, baby steps. #punintended

This is pretty monumental, his two kuyas were both three when they were potty trained, and this boy just turned two in May!

phone call home

Me: (calling the house)
James: Hello mom were you trying to call earlier? 
Me: Yes James…
James: Whaddya want?
Me: Excuuu-
James: Oh my gosh sorry mom, may I ask what do you want?
Me: *blink blink* James my dear. Correcting your rudeness by adding “May I ask” in front of it doesn’t make it any less rude. 
James: Ohhh, ok. Sorry mom. Hi! What’s up?


Giving up the unnecessary. Holding on to the most High. Learning how to love like He loves me. Figuring out what I need to lay down so I can be fully, wholeheartedly devoted to His kingdom’s cause. Confessing to God the darkest depths of my heart and knowing He loves me the same? Amen and amen. And when I stop seeking happiness from praise, wealth, things, I find that it’s been right there all along in His grace. Whew. And man oh man, that walk from here into eternity will be a sweet one and I know I’ll be rocking out and singing my thanks the whole way. ♪♫♪♪

It’s so easy to fall in love repeatedly when you are surrounded by so many handsome little men like I am! And three days ago my heart was happily stolen again from me when this little dude made his grand entrance into the world! Welcome to my newest munchkin, Ryden Pel Ty!!! Born three days ago to my best bud JB and her awesome hubby Orn :)
